Finance would be the biggest hurdle

We have Wales National teams at Junior level under 11 - under 16 which is run by the Cricket Board of Wales. After those age groups the players come under Glamorgan. Wales have a Minor Counties team but not a National team at Senior Level. I do not know all the politics behind the ECB \ EWCB etc but at present finance would be the biggest hurdle as neither Ireland or Scotland are funded through the ECB, I doubt that the Welsh Assembly would fund especially as Glamorgan at present get in excess of 1m from the ECB.
